Abstract A unique bearing system for particular use in scroll compressors includes a pair of spaced tapered portions. Upon misalignment of the shaft, the tapered portions contact the bearing and provide surface contact between the shaft and the bearing. This allows the bearing to more easily distribute the loads that are placed onto the bearing during shaft misalignment.
